Code Enforcement Department

The Code Enforcement Department has been established to ensure public health, safety, and welfare. The program encourages property owners to maintain their property to the minimum standards of the City’s property maintenance code and the City’s ordinances. The goal of the code enforcement department is to work with the property owners, tenants and business owners of Silver Grove to resolve all code violations in an equitable and helpful manner.
